Vornado VFAN Jr. Vintage Air Circulator
Yep, in case you're wondering, there's a VFAN Sr. too. And both of them are blow hards. Like father, like son.
I haven't used one of these vintage-style Vornado fans, but I have used the company's Super Fan, and it is coooooool. Half the size of a box fan and does at least twice the work. Judging by the VFAN Jr.'s reviews, Vornado doesn't disappoint here either. And my girlfriend thinks the green one is "sooo pretty. It could sit on the end table in the living room without ugging it up." But she might have just been saying that so she could add, "Unlike all of your stuff. Game boxes, wires, remote controls--do you know how many times I've tripped over...."
The VFAN Jr.'s nostalgic aesthetic comes courtesy of full metal construction and a throwback Vornado logo and font (I was surprised to hear the company has actually been around since 1945.) The air circulator uses a full-action pivot head for multi-directional airflow, and has 2 speed settings. Choose from green, red, white, or silver.
